Developing from Scottish Sculpture Workshop's ongoing research project, Turf to Tools, led by artist and Senior Technician Eden Jolly, this weekend course will share methods of ancient bronze casting used by Pictish metalworkers. Using simple, natural and readily available materials, such as beeswax, clay, sand, horse manure to make a green mould and a charcoal powered furnace, participants will cast small objects such as a piece of jewellery in bronze.
